Green Tea Matcha Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake with Irish Cream Glaze

I needed a green dessert for St. Patrick's Day so I decided to break out my green tea matcha powder. I know not everyone has immediate access to this, I have to purchase mine on ebay, but if you do it is a really versatile ingredient!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup plus 2 TB sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 TB green tea matcha powder
1 TB baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 and grease/flour a bundt pan very well.....get those crevasses!!!!

With a mixer beat butter, sugar and egg on medium speed until it is smooth.
Reduce speed to low and add milk and vanilla. Beat until well combined.

Combine all dry ingredients in another bowl, then on low speed,  add to liquids 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Turn speed back up to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
Fold in chocolate chips and pour into prepared pan.

Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes then gently loosen with a knife and turn it onto a wire rack to cool completely.

1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 TB Irish Cream
1/2-1  tsp matcha powder

Combine matcha and powdered sugar, then drizzle in Irish Cream to desired consistency....some may like it more frosting like, I prefer it pour-able consistency.

Spread or pour over cooled cake.
Allow to set for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
